    I have a Glock 19 (9mm) and a Sig Sauer P220 (.45 acp) for shot distance work, and I have a Glock 34 (9mm) for long distance. The Glock 19 is also my carry.

    I have a .22 Taurus revolver but I don't really like it.

    What should be my next gun?

    I want it for enjoyment.

    I probably should get a revolver, such as a Ruger 100, but I don't like the DA trigger pull. I realize I can pull the hammer back and shoot too.

    .22s seem to jam a lot in semi-autos.

    I want to spend about $500.

    Guns are for girls. When I want to kill someone, I do it with my bare hands.

    I have a Ruger Standard that has never jammed.

    The Mark III is the same basic design 50 years later.



    I've also heard good things about the Browning Buck Mark.

    I also have a Heritage Rough Rider (.22 LR/.22 MAG) SA revolver that cost less than $100 new.

    Remington .22 ammo seems to have quality issues with diameter and tend to jam.
    Federal .22 ammo works much better.

    I had a Ruger Mark 2 that I'd put thousands of rounds through without a single malfunction. But I will tell you there is a little trick when re-assembling this beautiful gun after cleaning that will aggravate the hell out of you until you get used to it. But the positive aspects are worth the effort.

    Highly recommended.
